Minimising Worker Fatigue by Providing Shoe Insoles

Construction work is often tiring and demanding on operatives physical wellbeing.

The importance of healthy and comfortable feet is often overlooked; issues with the feet often develop into more serious problems such as backaches, headaches and knee problems.

It is important to identify these problems and develop methods to minimise them.

Below is an example of how sites have introduced insoles to minimise worker fatigue:

  • In response to a concern expressed that some, mainly older workers were becoming fatigued by the end of the day, research was conducted by the site into the use of insoles to help minimise aches and pains;
  • These were provided for free to operatives;
  • The results proved to be positive in reducing tiredness and boosting general morale.
